[ipv6hackers] IPv6 ping of death? (anyone willing to try?)

Short version of the story: It seems that not that long ago I introduced
a bug in the toolkit, so if you were trying to exploit the IPv6 "ping of
death" attack with the "--pod-attack" option of the frag6 tool, this
could have been the reason it was not working as expected.

I've posted an update of the toolkit (v1.4.1) at:
<http://www.si6networks.com/tools/ipv6toolkit/> (simple tarball and
gpg-signed tarball)....or just clone the git repository.

Now, you may want to try the IPv6 "ping of death" as:

# frag6 -i INTERFACE -d TARGET --pod-attack

Note: I've not tried it against Windows, yet... and since I've been up
coding for the last 36 hours, I'm hoping that by the time I wake up
again someone has some results to share (talk about community ;-) ).
